Logan Pearsall Smith (1865-1946) was an American-born English writer and critic. Although he had an excellent reputation as a brilliant essayist, his connection to Virginia Woolf is an excellent one: his niece, Karin Stephen (a well-known psychologist) was married to Adrian Stephen, Virginia Woolf's brother. She and her husband were members of "Old Bloomsbury," as designated by Woolf's husband, Leonard.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
